Raft

 Is it me but does my cruet birds atop my sushi plate resemble a Polynesian kontiki-esque raft?

    Sorry, learned that decades ago and had to share it.

  7. It’s you. (No really, it does sort of.) And whether or not it resembles what you think, it’s kind of fun.

  8. For me, food presentation and placement makes a difference and your raft and bird presentation hits the mark. In my opinion, the presentation is as important as the food.

  10. Definitely-but I do think the kukabura? at the back looks to be a little wary though of what's coming up behind-bless him x

  14. Most definitely, and I've seen the one bods used to recreate the journeying from Hawaiki to NZ here in the National Museum (Te Papa).

    From t'internet=
    "Hawaiki – a real island? ... Hawaiki is the traditional Māori place of origin. The first Māori are said to have sailed to New Zealand from Hawaiki. And in Māori mythology Hawaiki is the place where Io, the supreme being, created the world and its first people."

  16. Now that image is in my mind I can't really see anything else! Love your little birds.

    Watched an amazing ladies canoe race in a programme about Hawaii last night. It was just beautiful to watch.

    Haha ... you need to lay off the wine ... or stop at one bottle!!

  18. You never will believe this John but as myself and my terriers were splashing happily along the stream-who did we see but an owl and a pussy cat in a pea green boat x

  19. Turn the paddles, I mean spoons, sideways. One 90 degrees left, the other 90 degrees right.
